"I have been familiar with chessmates since 2016 when I attended the event in Rotterdam. The idea of giving young and avid chess players a way to compete against each other in a friendly and social atmosphere has always appealed to me. This is precisely what chessmates does, and I am very happy to become an ambassador." Jordan Van Forest
